Product Description

Set in and around a quaint French village during the late 18th century, Beauty and the Beast follows the fantastic adventures of Belle, a bright and beautiful young woman who finds escape from her ordinary life, and the advances of a boorish suitor, Gaston, by reading books. Meanwhile, off in a castle in the distance, a cruel young prince is cast under the spell of an enchantress who turns him into a tormented beast, while transforming his servants into animated household objects. In order to remove the curse, the Beast must discover a true love who will return his affection before the last petal falls from an enchanted rose. When Belle's inventor father stumbles upon the Beast's castle and is taken prisoner, Belle comes to the rescue and agrees to take her father's place. With the help of the castle's enchanted staff, she sees beneath the Beast's exterior and discovers the heart and soul of a human prince.

From Amazon.co.uk

Some would put forward an argument that Beauty and the Beast is the finest Disney animated movie to date. And, in truth, it’s a tricky one to fight. Not only was this the first animated film to be rewarded with a Best Picture Oscar nomination, it remains a quite brilliant piece of filmmaking, that’s utterly endured the test of time.

There’s plenty that sets Beauty and the Beast apart from most, too. Take the exquisite characterisation, the ultra-tight script or the confident direction, for starters. Then throw in some astounding strong songs and music, from Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, and put at the heart of it all a love story utterly worth rooting for from start to finish. It’s a mesmeric film at best, not least in the rightly-famed ballroom sequence, and it’s very much Disney at the absolute height of its powers.

Fortunately, the Blu-ray is a flat-out love letter to the film. Packed with fascinating extra features, offering something for viewers of all ages, it’s a insightful look behind the film, and offers the kind of quality supplements you can’t help but wish all films could match. Add in the 1080p picture presentation, and Beauty and the Beast on Blu-ray adds up to an unmissable family treat. An outstanding package. --Jon Foster

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Just consider for a moment that this film was nominated for an Oscar among other wonderful films of its day, such as Silence of The Lambs, Terminator 2, Hook and even JFK. Now that is rare for animation... This is pivotal in itself for so often in the past, the animated film has been considered expendable amongst the recognition of live action films. Beauty and The Beast broke that mould however with its throwback to the glory days of traditional Disney animation. The film does not try to be clever, nor does it hold any sophisticated meaning apart from one simple truth; that love can prevail when one looks beyond appearance. How fitting it is then that our protagonist 'Belle', the young book lover and son of an inventor, is at first horrified by the appearance of the ghastly Beast, living alone in his gloomy (yet enchanted!) castle - yet once she see's beyond the cover, the contents is undoubtedly loveable.

This is only half the value of the movie, for the soundtrack lends itself as an important motive to the films enjoyment. Every single song from the film is memorable both in lyric and melody, making it all the more sad that the lyricist Howard Ashman passed away before the movie was even released. It's also challenging to say that much of Beauty and The Beast's music is more emotionally captivating than many of the studio's efforts beforehand. This is no fluke - it was a need and a wanting to return to importance of sound within animation.

'Diamond Edition' - Disney's latest blurb for their hand-picked movies that they consider to the studio's finest, though I would argue this entirely given that 'Fantasia' was dropped from the line only earlier this year (for some reason...), and that itself was pivotal in movie history.

Format: DVD
Belle is bored with life in her village. Her only escape is her books, and she longs to have an adventure of her own. When her father heads out to a fair, he gets lots, and Belle finds him in an enchanted castle. The objects are thrilled, because if she and their master, the Beast, fall in love, they will all be freed from the enchantment. But will Belle be able to see past the outward appearance? And what about the handsome bore back home who wants to marry Belle?
I feel in love with this movie the first time I saw it, and that love has only grown over the years. The story is the right mix of fun and uncertainty. Gaston was a wonderful addition to the mix because his story was the part I was most uncertain about the first time around. The artwork on the film catches your eye from the first shot of the castle, and doesn't let go. Beside the incredible background shots are wonderful drawings of the characters. I especially love the boyish excitement they manage to give the Beast in several scenes. Finally, there's the music. Every song adds to the story and is memorable in its own right.
This DVD is perfect for any fan of this movie. Disc 1 includes three versions of the film. The first is the "in progress" version shown to the New York film festival 6 weeks before the premier of the movie in 1991. While it's fun to have, I won't be watching it regularly. The second version is the original release. And finally comes the special edition, with the added scene and "Human Again." Ironically, this is probably my least favorite of the songs added to the Broadway version, but it does advance the story. And, there's always the option of watching the original version.

Beauty and the Beast has always been my favourite Disney film since I first saw it at the cinema 20 years ago (!)
Since then I must have watched it over a hundred times.On video with my children when they were young,in Imax some years later ,the excellent live stage production and then on DVD.
So when I heard Disney were making a 3D version from the original I was expecting,at best,something that looked like a 3D 'pop-up'book.
It has however far exceeded my expectations ! From the opening scene to the end titles the quality of the 3D is nothing short of amazing ! You would think it was originally made in 3D rather than a conversion 20 years on which made the whole viewing experience like watching it for the first time all over again !
Stunning 3D picture and beautiful sound make this special release very special indeed!

Everyone has a childhood memory and mine is sitting near the fire in winter munching on popcorn/chips/sweets watching the magic of beauty & the beast unfold. I'm still a big kid at heart so give me this movie any day and I will be a very happy person. The beauty of this movie can't be distinctly pin pointed because so many aspects that contribute towards it like the great music (they sing & dance to almost anything) the great characters (beautiful Belle, moody Beast/handsome, joyous prince, the flirtatious candle, the pompous clock, the busty wardrobe are just such a pleasure to watch. The graphics are/were incredible for its time, so Disney has done well! This is a story hopefully many generations will continue to enjoy down the years & the magic of Beauty & the Beast will live on!
